A dam will convert gravitational to kinetic to electric I believe. I hope this is the sort of answer you are looking for.

It is converted into other forms of energy. For example, in a water boiler, electrical energy is converted into heat energy. In lighting, electrical energy is converted into light energy. In MP3s, electrical energy is converted into sound energy. In roller coasters, electrical energy is converted into gravitational potential energy. In electrical fans, electrical energy is converted into kinetic energy. In charging your phone, electrical energy is converted into chemical energy.

HYDROELECTRIC POWERPLANT is the best example to convert gravitational energy to kinetic energy to electric current.The production of electrical power through the use of the gravitational force of falling or flowing water onto the rotor which rotates motor and motor converts the kinetic energy into electric enrgy.

when there is a wave,there is gravitational potential energy,which is converted to kinetic energy,when the water hits the turbine,it creates electrical energy.

When an object falls down, its gravitational potential energy will be converted to kinetic energy.

When you drop an object from a height (x meters) it wil loose gravitational potential energy and proportionally gain kinetic energy. In the moment when it hits the ground, all gravitational potential energy will be converted into kinetic energy.

The electrical energy of thermal energy is called kinetic energy. An example of electrical energy converted to thermal energy is a toaster drawing current from an electrical outlet.

During the operation of hydraulic power plants that make use of water falls.

I believe electrical energy is considered potential energy and not kinetic. Kinetic energy is when an object is moving, electrical energy is a stored energy that can be converted to kinetic energy.

When the object moves, its potential energy is converted into kinetic energy.

Kinetic energy can be coverted to electrical energy. This happens in power stations when turbines turn (kinetic) to generate electricity. There are other applications that transfer kinetic energy to electrical energy such as dynamos. Sometimes the kinetic energy is converted to stored energy like strain or gravitational energy. Winding something up for example, this energy can then be used to power watches, wind up toys and even wind up radios. Kinetic energy is also converted into heat and sound - rub your hands together and you'll see what I mean!

The pendulum's momentum or kinetic energy is converted to gravitational potential energy until all of the kinetic energy is converted. The pendulum stops.

Kinetic energy is the energy in a mass of matter that is in motion, the energy of motion. Potential energy (where mass is in a gravity field) can be converted into kinetic energy Chemical energy (of an explosion) can be converted into kinetic energy Electrical energy can be converted into kinetic energy (eg in an electric motor)

Gravitational potential energy (often abbreviated to GE) which is then converted to kinetic energy when somebody falls.

Because no conductor is a perfect conductor of electrical energy (apart from superconductors). This means that some electrical energy is converted to kinetic energy as the electrons vibrate/move (depending on your idea of how electrical force is moved) and this kinetic energy is emitted as heat.

Gravitational potential energy in the water is converted into mechanical energy by turning turbine "blades", the mechanical energy (kinetic energy) is converted to electrical energy by the electric generator.

chemical from battery converted into electrical then the engine converts it to kinetic

Electrical energy is converted into thermal and kinetic energy.

That could happen in an electric or hybrid car, when the car is coasting down a hill, converting gravitational potential energy to the car's kinetic energy, and a touch of the brakes puts some of that kinetic energy into the batteries. But it's a stretch.

If a body with gravitational potential energy is allowed to fall, then the potential energy is converted (mostly) to kinetic energy.

Gravitational potential energy IS mechanical energy. Mechanical energy includes both kinetic energy, and potential energy.When an object falls, gravitational potential energy will be converted to KINETIC energy.

There is a conversion from potential to kinetic energy. Kinetic energy is converted into electrical energy.
